If you think you’ve seen every photo of The Rolling Stones that’s ever been printed – and it’s easy to imagine that you have – you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you get a peak at an exhibit that’s up now at The Morrison Hotel Gallery. Featuring live performance, perfectly posed and delightfully candid photos of every incarnation of The Stones’ line up since the band’s inception, this captivating collection features work by iconic photographers such as Michael Cooper, Henry Diltz, Barry Feinstein, Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen, Michael Joseph, Andee Nathanson, Gered Mankowitz, Terry O’Neill, Neal Preston, Ken Regan, Ethan Russell, Barrie Wentzell and Ian Wright. Wow!
I stopped by the Press Preview last night and had lots of fun. My favorite piece in the show is a huge, poster-sized framed print of a shot from the cover sessions for Their Satanic Majesty’s Request. Did you know that if you look not even too closely you can find the faces of all four Beatles nestled in the foreground? Not Kidding!
If you love the Rock & Roll and appreciate great photography, head on downtown and have some fun looking at these amazing photos of the Last Great Rock Band on Earth. Yes, I just typed that.
The Rolling Stones exhibit will be on display through May 31st, 2012 at the Morrison Hotel Gallery, located at 119 (Upstairs) and 124 Prince Street in SoHo.
